the british are coming...



This is my dream (at least one of them)...

...I live in New York City and I'm living in rooms like the ones in these photos.

CROSBY STREET HOTEL is the newest addition to the FIRMDALE HOTEL chain that is based in England---Crosby Street being their first US venture. If you've ever wanted to mix patterns, styles, colors and textured while still creating timeless, classic rooms---this place is an inspiration. The fact that the rooms are in an already architecturally beautiful building and a great neigbothood only add to my passion for the place.

I would like to go on record as saying that I could live there. I see a bottle of red wine, a bowl of homemade pasta bolognese, arugula salad with fresh shaved parmesan, a great crusty fresh baked baguette drizzled with olive oil and some sort of Demel chocolate torte & a double espresso for dessert on the patio. I'd take a cheeseburger & fries from "the joint" as well--BUT the Demel torte & double espresso are still a given.

My dreams are very specific.

Ooh-la-la!!! I'd be very happy living there too!! I can't decide which room I like best, so I'll just sleep in a different room each night :-)

Love all the great colours and patterns and textures. And that white wire chandelier is very cool :-)

I adore those black steel doors -- they're my current design crush :-)

The room doesn't even look like a typical hotel room. And that is what I love about it. To be surrounded by all the beauty of the room makes it cozy to me.

Of course a bottle of red with pasta would be an added bonus!

Not sure what is more fabulous - these over moon rooms or the food you just described. I think my heart just stopped for a few beats. Lovey beyond words. Thanks Angelo!

I love those circular mirrors with the fish-eye like view. Reminds me of the Arnolfini Portrait, one of my favorites.

When you have a very specific dreams, they are more likely to happen! Meanwhile, I would dream of living in rooms like these... Who would have thought they were in a hotel. In a word wow!
